I like to tell stories.

Stories about inequity in education within urban schools, stories about refugee and immigrant students who have found themselves in a school designed specifically for them, stories about charter school scandals or stories about returning veterans adjusting to life in higher education.

I am currently a journalist, an editor, a student and a BullGator.

I began graduate school at the University of Florida in the fall of 2015 to obtain my master’s degree in journalism. Previously, I served two years of national service with AmeriCorps – working as a tutor, mentor and literacy coordinator in Title I high schools and providing support in the classroom to help bridge the achievement gap in education. Before my service stint, I covered politics, education and real estate in Miami and Tampa.

Once I’ve obtained my degree, I hope to utilize my media skills as well as my experience with social justice issues, education and nonprofits in an innovative position reporting on education and other national issues. I also hope to use the stories I tell to generate positive social impacts.

When I am not on an assignment or in class, I enjoy slowly learning how to play guitar, exploring new brunch spots, practicing yoga and spending time with my Beagle.
